    Sentry, I find it pretty hard to believe that your knowledge of Peanuts extends much further than watching a couple of the TV specials, which isn't really a very good way of judging whether it was a good comic strip or not.

    And to be perfectly honest with you, I don't think that Calvin and Hobbes even exists without Peanuts.

    From about the time I was 8 until I went off to college I read the comics every morning... Peanuts and Calvin and Hobbes were both there... if I can remember details about one over the other, perhaps it is due more to the blandness and banality then it is ignorance.

    Although I do agree with you about Calvin and Hobbes not existing without Peanuts; frankly, Sunday comics as medium might not have existed. I wasn't trying to discount Peanuts place in history.

    I still find it hard to believe that of all the negative words to describe Peanuts, you chose "banal," since that's basically as far off from describing it as if I were to call it "pornographic"

    Thank you for using the eyeroll emoticon. Now I don't have to take you seriously anymore.
